I am super noise sensitive since my TBI. I also understand how lucky I am to hear as some lose their ability to hear. But it does not mean being noise sensitive is a blessing at all.
It gets so bad and then crates a storm of issues like irrationality, frustration and crying. I freak out and cannot take it. Not to mention not getting sleep is awful too especially with brain injury. I so feel for those who don’t sleep well, it’s so common and I’m a wreck without my sleep. I’m a wreck anyways but adding no sleep in oh my.
My husband is watching a movie, I’m freaking out. It’s too loud although he has turned it down again and again and is having trouble hearing it.
So I put my earplugs in I bought. I have noise canceling headphones too. And if neither work, I will leave the room because it is making me so irritable and frustrated.
We have a drop from our gutter due to the rain and the way the gutter is angled. Drip. Drip. Drip. Every freaking night. Help noise sensitivity. I didn’t sleep well all week and normally sleep out cold every night. Rest is a must. It will be fixed soon and I am so lucky to spend the weekend at the beach house and my husband is sleeping in the camper with the dogs so I can catch up on my sleep. So thankful for such an understanding man in my life.
I just can’t believe how bad noise is to me now. Things you definitely don’t think about until you injury your brain and are affected by these types of things.
